Not to stray too far from the original topic but i have found some "rare" M-Codes, let me know if anyone has actually seen buses with these codes...

M697- Passenger Swiveling Seat
M765 & 766- Special Sales Campaign
Z01- Bad weather Package, Interval wiper facility, halogen fog lamps, rear fog lamp
Z05- M- package comprising: trip counter, clock, rubber on bumpers, vent wings in cab doors, back-up lights
Z21- Z01 & Z05

A bus with Z21 would be a rare bird indeed!

haven't checked my M code plate but i assume that
M697- Passenger Swiveling Seat is in there since it's an original westy berlin fitting.

probably not marketed in afghanistan. Wink

I have 71-72 front bumper overiders (euro spec) and have found someone thru here who has a rear set and is in USA so would these different market bits count as rare too? The trip odometer is really cool. I have seen a bus with the timer for the heater wjhich came from Germany where many were sold to older folks for their retirement and these often had some great options on. I have never seen the plastic wind deflector on the sunroof pictured there. That looked really cool too. The racks/ladders you mention- do you have any broshure pics. If anyone wants me to check the swapmeet at the Volksworld show over here for anything please e-mail me a (short) list and contact details as I will be part picking early Saturday. There are usually a few traders from Europe there. I'm also looking for a really cool bus bus shifter I saw there last year that was as nice as the berg one but quite a bit cheaper.
I will post pics of every Bay I can find too!

i've seen those locks once... but it was a VW shop owner's bus in downey, california...


I've seen that bus lock as well. I believe it was on the rear cargo hatch of a white '71 panel bus. I think it was at Bill & Steve's. that was one clean panel. Cool

The answer to that question is no, there was not a tachograph offered for Baywindows, however many have been made "to fit"

Other Rare Baywindow dash gauges are the trip-odometer

Uhhh.....he's saying it would be RARE to hear someone say how much they love their GEX engine. Don't get all upset...just because you started the thread doesn't mean you own it.
